Shopkick: Free App for Smart Phones and Tablets
Most of us are in and out of stores at least once a week. With the Shopkick app, you can make kicks - points --simply walking into a store, points that will earn you rewards as you accumulate them.
Shopkick, founded in 2010, was, according to the Shopkick website , was rated by Forbes as "one of America's most promising companies" in 2014. Even so, I only recently learned about the app from my neighbor, who began using the app herself after a friend told her about the site. That same friend explained that through her use of Shopkick, she had accumulated enough points/rewards to purchase a 50-inch television set from BestBuy -- and it didn't cost her one red cent!
The app enables you to earn points three ways: Through walking into a store; by scanning items in the store; and/or by purchasing items. Your points earned are tallied by the app and applied to the reward you choose. The rewards choices are many, ranging from gas cards to Target gift cards to BestBuy gift cards and much more.
Not every store participates in the Shopkick program, but there are many that do. When you download the app, it gives you a list of participating stores in your area.
I'm excited about the prospect of earning rewards just for walking into a store and won't mind scanning a few products each time. My plan is to save my rewards to buy things for my grand kids. Have you tried Shopkick? If so, would you share your experiences with it?
